Rian Johnson’s Knives Out was one of the most pleasant surprises of 2019 and as we learned earlier this week, the star-studded mystery movie was such a critical and commercial success that Lionsgate green-lit a sequel, with both Johnson and Daniel Craig returning.

While on The Jess Cagle Show yesterday, Johnson provided a few more details about the recently announced sequel, saying that other than Craig reprising his roles as Benoit Blanc, fans should expect a much different cast, setting, and mystery in the sequel.

For those less familiar, Knives Out is a witty, supremely clever, and brilliantly written murder mystery that unlike 2017’s Murder on the Orient Expresshas a much better pay off and makes much better use of its all-star ensemble. Considering all the negativity and hate Johnson received following Star Wars: The Last Jedi, we’re happy to see the talented writer/director is back at the top of his game.

Are you looking forward to a Knives Out sequel? Let us know in the comments below.
